lincoln used. we'll give you a close look at this extraordinary piece of american history. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> let's begin this hour with the breaking news. algeria's official news agency has just announced the end of a rescue operation aimed at freeing hostages, including americans held by islamic militants. u.s. government officials tell cnn that may not necessarily, though, be the case. let's get straight to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence working this story for us. chris, be what is the very latest that you're hearing? >> wolf, the latest that we're getting from u.s. officials is that some americans may have escaped but some may still be held by those hostage takers and they are still seeing signs perhaps of some intermittent fighting, suggesting that perhaps this isn't over yet. as the hostage situation stretched to a second day, u.s. officials scrambled to find a resolution and determine the state of the americans still in militant hands. >> this incident will be resolved, we hope with a minimum loss of life. but when you deal with t
laying his left hand on two bibles -- one owned by abraham lincoln and the other owned by dr. martin luther king, jr. afterward, obama will deliver a speech laying out his plans for the next four years. the nro ceremony will include music from singers james taylor, beyoncÉ, and others which will carry live during our extended five-our inauguration special. after our regular broadcast ends, we will continue to bring you coverage until 1:00 p.m. eastern standard time, including the swearing in ceremony. some stations will run the whole five our special, for others you can go to democracynow.org. this year, the inauguration also comes on the federal holiday in honor of dr. martin luther king, jr., who delivered his "i have a dream" speech 50 years ago, not far from here at the lincoln memorial. later in our special coverage, we will air excerpts of some of dr. king's less often played speeches, including "beyond vietnam." why he opposed the war in vietnam. but first, we turn to some of the voices of hope and resistance from sunday night's piece ball. not affiliated with any political p
to be taking the oath on lincoln's bible and martin luther king's bible. >> if i were him i would pay attention to one of the best inaugural speeches at the time which is i think not exactly the same but most similar was 1865. >> lincoln's second term. >> lincoln's speech used the word "i" one time. >> setting the bar very high. >> but i think we are at probably in this country at one of the most divisive polarized times we've had since the civil war and in that speech lincoln talked about we both pray to the same god, malice towards none, charity for all, and all of that, and i think this president, which i don't think will do, should come with a sense of humbleness, a sense of humility and a sense that basically the biggest problem he has in this country is the divisions that exist in this country that have only been made worse in the course of his presidency. age divisions, sex divisions, church divisions, all the divisions that exist in this country, he has to figure out a way to bring people together and solve some of the problems. >> which is why i think ping is a good example. he takes t

luther king's, and president lincoln's. >> i barack hussein obama -- >> reporter: standing on the national mall, as many as 800,000 people. that is nearly twice as many people who attended the second inaugurals of presidents clinton and bush. before the oath and the party, today the president did a little work. >> this inauguration is a symbol of how our democracy works and how we peacefully transfer power. >> reporter: a national day of service, brought the first family to a d.c. elementary school for a bit of painting while around the nation's capital, the final touches were going on the parade route and the visitors were already starting to gather on the people's lawn. i have covered a couple of these, david. they can be very, very chilly. here's the good news, the forecast calls for maybe 40 degrees when the president takes the oath on monday. >> we'll take 40. >> david kerley, see you at the capital. >> want to bring in ginger zee. >> it's going to be 40 degrees. not bad at all. we're lucky it's not happening on tuesday. that's when a huge push of arctic air is coming

: and abraham lincoln's, delivered to a nation divided by civil war. >> with malice toward none, with charity for all. >> reporter: a third theme, renewing our commitment to the values of our founding fathers. perhaps it's surprising the president found inspiration in the words of this former a adversa adversary. >> there can be no human rights without human liberty. >> reporter: aides tell us that, although the president disagrees with mr. bush's policy, he's moved by the speech's democratic principles. >> freedom by its nature must be chosen and defended by citizens. >> reporter: a message, aides say, the president will echo today, as he did at the white house last week. >> that most fundamental set of rights, to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> reporter: of all his predecessors, the president says he is most inspired by president lincoln. >> that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth. >> reporter: in november, mr. obama screened steven spielberg's movie "lincoln" at the white ho
foundation. >>> next, rush limbaugh has a theory about why so many on the left are fans of the movie "lincoln." >> why is bill clinton out there at the golden globes last night being brought on stage to thunderous standing ovations to talk about lincoln and what he did during -- what did lincoln do? as far as these people are concerned, he wiped out the south. but he didn't finish, so what the left is admitting today that they are doing is once -- trying to finish it off. lincoln did not fully finish. they're all focused on gods and guns in the south. they love both of them. and so the south has to be wiped out again. i'm telling you, essentially there is an all-out effort being made to marginalize conservatism. >> reminds me of radio rwanda in the bad old days. it's been far right republicans obviously doing all the civil war talk. they're the ones talking about the civil war, about nullification of federal laws and all the secession petitions out there. >>> before house republicans head off for their annual retreat this week, i think it's in williamsburg, the democratic congressional campai

the quite remarkable book, april 1865 about lincoln's last days and inauguration is with us here. real quickly, jay, before the president comes out and the vice president, second inaugurations, what is special about them? >> it is special because it marks the continuing of a second term. of course we think of abraham lincoln's masterpiece second inaugural which inspired all americans of his day. i think really it's a day of humility. george washington put it best. he said after taking the oath of office my hand trembles but my heart does not. i think that pretty much sums it up. >> his was the shortest inaugural address, first ever, 135 words. lincoln's was only 700 words in 1865. a lot of people think it was the greatest speech a president ever delivered. >> it was the greatest speech a president ever delivered. the nation was in the throes of a civil war. lincoln was exhausted. before he gave the speech he spent time in the capitol signing bills. there was a lot to work to be done. >> with malice toward none and charity for all. obviously the civil war was about to end and he was ver

one. >> of course, there was lincoln's second inaugural where he talked about the wounds of the nation. we know that the president has been working on this president for weeks and major garrett, our chief white house correspondent, is at the white house this morning with a little bit of insight on what we might hear today. >> well, good morning, scott. those closest to the president tell us this speech is in the moment and it's going to talk, they hope, credibly, believably about responsibilities ahead. and the prospect for not only bipartisan compromise, and things that didn't seem achievable four years ago. it might be worth reminding us ourselves how the president ended first inaugural address four years ago. scott, the president talked about america being in the midst of a winter of our hardship and he urged the nation to brave icy currents and to endure whatever storms may come. there was a sense of forboding then, a sense of crisis, both economic and otherwise, that white house advisers that he feels is no longer as present now as it was then. so that's part of the optimistic not
goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't quote lincoln's second inaugural? >> i would be shocked if lincoln is not quoted. i would be shocked if specific issues aren't mentioned. that doesn't mean he isn't going to talk about newtown. but as far as talking about guns and gun control, he's got a state of the union in three weeks. advisers continue to remind us of that. hey, this is not a laundry list of things he wants to get done. yes, he has a small window. i think savannah is right, i think we'll be able to judge by the fourth of july of this year, has he gotten one of his gun proposals passed through congress, is immigration done? all of those things, if he can get them done, probably need to get done by the summer. but today's speech knot for that. that's that state of the union which takes place in three weeks. >> all right. chuck todd in front of reviewing stand. we want to show you, especially those just joining us the kind of calendar of events, the schedule upcoming. right now, the president is hosting congressional leaders inside the white house for a kind of traditiona
figures i admire probably more than anybody in american history is dr. king and president lincoln. for me to have the opportunity to use the bible they used on the 105th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the march on washington is fitting. their actions and the movement they represent are the only reason that it is possible for me to be inaugurated. it is also a reminder for me that this country has gone through tough times before but we always come out on the other side. we're constantly perfecting our union and making it more fair. we want everybody to have a fair shot in this country. if you work hard, you can make it. regardless of where you come from or what you look like. it is probably the most important thing to keep in mind when you are president of the united states. i will uphold my oath of office at the same time letting me remind people of the sacrifices of the past. from the presidential inaugural committee host: first lady michelle obama just turned 49 last week. she will have a big role during the next couple of days. here is take twe
are following a lincoln town car they thought that was suspicious. they stopped the car. one thing leads to another. a couple gang bangers in the car. lo and behold, the gun gets c's, a glock nine-millimeter pistol. because of the good process is still in place, that gun goes right to the illinois timeout, testfired and the test fires search through the database and this time there is a hit, a match. now police now attack nics from from that lincoln town car ways that gun used to kill bloomberg eight years before. the problem is that the people driving that car in possession of that gun eight years before were probably 10 or 11 years old they couldn't reach the pedals of that lincoln town car. frankly i have a problem reaching the pedals on a lincoln town car myself. but what's happened here is police depended on information and data available to them from the inside of the gun, the ballistics data to determine what crime that gun was used to commit. but now they were stymied. so what do they do? they turned to the outside of the gun. they made models hillier number, nomenclature, descri
crisis. we talked about abraham lincoln's second inaugural while the civil war was still going on. we talk about f.d.r.'s "we have nothing to fear." the great depression was on and unemployment with such staggeringly high numbers so this is a time where people have felt improvement since president obama came? we have to remember the crash of the economy stock market in such terrible shape. it's been a progressive incrementalism. but i have to say this speech is part of a progressive tradition of a theodore roosevelt speech in kansas where barack obama in 1911 when -- in 2011 he went and if you read the t.r. speech "the new nationalism" you'll find hit in the speech he gave today. you'll find it at f.d.r.'s second inaugural and in many of martin luther king's speeches. people talk about kennedy's inaugural about swords and switchbacks. it's a technique that worked brilliantly for john f. kennedy but i think the president had caught the aura of dr. king today quite well. >> pelley: and this day being inauguration day and martin luther king day all at the same time. doug, thanks very muc
and prayers. as he left the west front of the capitol, a nostalgic turned back toward the lincoln memorial. >> i want to take a look out one more time. >> now there were shades of the campaign that the president winning out, success can't mean that a few people are making it and a growing number are barely scratching by. the president acknowledging that bipartisan -- or the lack of bipartisanship here in washington but noted that everyone needs to work together for the good of the country. john? >> dan, that moment at the end of your piece where the president turned around and looked, that was astounding. 23 seconds he stood there and he gazed out at the national mall to let it sink in. it must have been an extraordinary day for him. what does today hold for him after that full night of dancing he had? >> reporter: he heads to the national cathedral. the day after inauguration, the presidents always get a chance to go sit down at an interfaith service, a prayer and prayers are given not only for the president but also the vice president for their second terms. this is historic event that d
speeches and i remember both of lincolns, kennedys, fdr's. >> greta: i take it you don't remember lincolns from personal experience. >> no, but it's finer than the gettysburg address. the president's was not uplifting. it was not poetry, it was pros and part of it was pedestrian and partisan and i think he missed a golden opportunity. the whole country was watching and he should have lifted the whole country. this was part of a state of the union address and i thought the president lost an opportunity and they usually talk about what? and when i was a kid, lexington, concorde, bunker hill, stonewall, a barroom brawl in greenwich village in 1969 when the cops hassled the gays in the bar and threw them out. does that belong in a presidential inaugural? >> i thought, one thing he has been -- i mean, he speaks beautifully, inspires people. i thought he wasn't interested in his own speech. i don't think he sold it. i thought he just read it to us. i was actually quite surprised because whether you agree with him politically or not, he can just sort of. he can dazzle everybody when he speaks, bu
abraham lincoln, i saw at least three speeches in there. the nation without liberty and equality, remain half free and half slave. and that's almost word for word from the house divided. gettysburg address, we have a republic, by the people, for the people. and lincoln's famous message to congress in 1862 before the emancipation proclamation he said as we think anew as our case is new so must we think and act anew. but, look, you don't become, you know, big rhetoric by simply copying the words of somebody else, you have to have a big original thought. charles was right. this was a declaration of liberalism is back in all its glory you about he couldn't say the era of big government is over or find a memorable phrase that introduces the idea, this is about expanding government and more power. >> sean: stay right there. and according to cbs we ought to be a one party country. and we'll explain. more from washington as we keep our eye on the inauguration 2013. and will the spending hit them in the pocket? details of na plan. and world champion the shooter showed us on friday night the stupi
from the foot of the u.s. capitol to the lincoln memorial to witness history. the second inauguration of president barack obama. the 57th u.s. presidential inaugural. as he walked off the platform, the president paused, telling everyone he won't do this again, and he looked back. a reflective moment to start his second term. before the real business begins tomorrow, tonight, it is all about the celebrations. the inaugural balls. we're going to take you to erin burnett and pierce mas morgan. >> we got the good assignment here. maybe hard to hear. >> best gig in hollywood. washington, any way you like. >> that's right. there are going to be ibt 40,000 people coming to where piers and i are here tonight. this is it, this ball and the one upstairs, those are the two the president is going to be attended, and they have all of the hot acts. >> the inaugural ball is on this floor, and it's currently the biggest disco you have seen in your life. 35 people will be swilling and guzzling around here. upstairs, the commander in chief ball. a little more exclusive. you will see stovy wune stevie y
, with the lincoln bible, and the mlk bible, 150 years ago. the emancipation proclamation, he could not be standing up there, barack obama a black man. and dr. king, without him, he would not be standing there. so the two men, he is there with both bibles. it's just a sense of conformation about what a country we are. >> despite the conformation and all the pomp and circumstances, the president needs to work with congress and the republican house that he has butted heads with so much, how do you think the president should address the bitter partisan divide that exists in washington in the speech? >> i was just reading franklin roosevelt's second inauguration speech and he was in the a similar situation to barack obama. the economy was struggling. and he did not give a speech that was designed to say, heal the nation's wounds and bring the nation together. he gave a surprisingly polarizing speech saying we have a ways to go. we have got a -- it's not about more for those who already have much. it's about helping those who have nothing. it was called the one-third of the nation speech, because he poi
. and then another. and then another. he gave them a quick -- a completely inebriated inaugural address. lincoln was mortified. i unfortunately for johnson, it sets a public image of the andrew johnson. another burly disastrous vice- presidential inaugural address was calvin coolidge as vice- president. he used his address to tell the senate how they should operate. it set him off on a bad -- starting in 1937, that is when the congress started before the president. now president and vice presidents are sworn outside on the steps. the vice president lost his chance to give an inaugural address. there was one exception in that long tradition of the inauguration speech tell that the capital. that was in 1945 when franklin roosevelt was being sworn in for a fourth time. franklin roosevelt, his third inauguration was done at the capitol, but his fourth one was in the middle of world war ii. he felt this was not the inopportune time to have an elaborate inauguration. he decided on his own to move the inauguration to the south front of the capital. the joint committee was not happy with that decision.
'll pay tribute to the past. he'll be sworn in on two bibles. one used by abraham lincoln. and one, fittingly on this day, used by dr. martin luther king jr. the president will celebrate at two inaugural balls, versus the ten held four years ago. even if there's less fanfare, the day will not be without its pomp and circumstance. and star power. katy perry kicked things off at a concert earlier this weekend. ♪ at last >> reporter: and beyonce, whose rendition of edda james' "at last" was a highlight of the 2009 inauguration, will this time perform the national anthem, at the capitol ceremony. who can forget that moment in 2009. again, sasha pointed out, dad did not mess it up. he has one more shot at it. >> that's right, josh. >>> today, a day for poetry. the prose of governing comes next. and jonathan karl at the capitol for that. as the president prepares to deliver his speech, his team is gearing up for a lot of big debates ahead. >> reporter: you can see the presidential podium, still covered in plastic. it is from there that he will deliver one of the most important speeches
the bible and today the bible is front and center again, his bible and president lincoln's bible. so you have 150 years of the emancipation proclamation and 50 years of the dream and they're represented by those two bibles today. >> gretchen: it's so unbelievable it will be the bible for president obama as he he's celebratory swearing in today. and the youth leader was asking the kids if they knew about martin luther king, jr. and of course many raised hands and what i loved was hearing the variety of answers from, he was a pastor, to he was trying to bring peace to the world, et cetera. and i thought it was wonderful that the kids, obviously, know about the lessons that your uncle brought to this nation. how do you think he would tackle the issue of gun control that we're talking about today? >> well, i believe, i remember and my family, all pictures, including dr. king, and jesus christ when he was in the garden and peter took a sword and chopped off the guard's ear trying to protect jesus and jesus put the guard's ear back on and said i'm here to do a job and it's okay, peter. and he
have to take tough votes in a few states. >> stephanie: i found myself thinking of the movie "lincoln," when the president said this will only happen if the american people want it. and i refuse to give in. that's what they said about the amendment that lincoln was trying to get passed right? >> i think moral and fiber and character of people in lincoln's time was probably a little bit higher than speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell. so i hope speaker boehner does the right thing and opens it up to a vote. if the nra has bought their power anywhere it's in the house of representative. >> i'm just going to open up a bottle of bourbon. [ glugging sound ] >> stephanie: i was hoping yesterday that he would say he loves sydney allen wade. but he didn't. >> but he'll drink to sand. >> stephanie: exactly. let's do rush limbaugh. >> been watching the -- the -- the children as human shields -- >> oh, shut up. >> that is now going on at the white house. by these guys were somber you would have thought that eulogies -- [ mumbling ] -- worked with this guy 27 hours a day. presi

, four presidents took the oath of office. here abraham lincoln served his single term in congress, and john quincy adams, the only former president to return to serve in the house spoke out against slavery. today we also remember in event that took place outside the building but reverberated within. this year marks the 50th anniversary of the reverend r. luther king junior's march on washington, which spurred passage of the historic civil rights laws. we are honored to have with us a colleague, congressman john lewis, a speaker at that historic march.
